Mexico hosts economic summit
From AP and UPI
CANCUN, Mexico - With high hopes
but low expectations, the leaders of 22
nations gathered in the Yucatan resort
of Cancun yesterday for two days of
talks on how to bridge the economic gap
between the rich and poor nations they
.President Reagan, after arriving in
Mexico yesterday, held diplomatic
talks on sensitive issues with India's
Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and
China's new leader, Premier Zhao
THE PRESIDENT also conferred
with Mexican President Jose Lopez
Portillo, host of the 'meeting on this
Yucatan Peninsula resort island.
Mindful of the recent attempt to
assassinate Reagan, Mexico turned the
picture-postcard perfect island resort
into a fortress so strong that officials
later conceded security might have to
be easeda bit.
Security was so tight as the leaders
began arriving that cars driving the 13
miles from the airport to the hotel
summit site were checked at eight
roadblocks. Mexican officials com-
plained of being stopped every few
,minutes for identity checks.
NUZZLED BY the warm,
aquamarine waters of the Caribbean,
Cancunisland is an apt site for a sum-
mit on the world's lopsided distribution
of wealth - a debate known informally
as the North-South dialogue.
Reagan plunged into his second in-
ternational economic summit Wed-
nesday with a pledge to "listen and
learn and do what we can" to help close
the gap between the rich and poor
nations of the world.
On the eve of the conference's formal
opening, a senior administration of-
ficial said that the Reagan ad-
ministration opposes an Austrian
proposal to create a 'Marshall Plan of
massive assistance for the Third World.
THE OFFICIAL, who declined to be
identified, said the United States favors
private investment to promote growth
instead of a foreign aid plan such as
that provided to Europe after World
The leaders of the eight rich and 14
poor nations attending the summit of-
ficially beginning today will see little of
the glitter and probably nothing of the
tarnish as they closet themselves inside
the pyramid-shaped Sheraton Hotel,
surrounded by thousands of police and

Vatican may tighten
VATICAN CITY (UPI) - U.S. Roman
Catholic church sources said yesterday
American bishops expect the Vatican
code of canon law will tighten
procedures for marriage annulments.
"They've been expecting a change in
the annulments rule for more than a
year, since the World Synodof Bishops
in October 1980," one U.S. church sour-
"FOR ALMOST 12 years now, the
churches in the United States and
Australia have been using a simplified
annulment procedure that does away
with the requirement for an appeal in
every case," the source said, adding
that the revised code of canon law is
expected to reinstate the appeal
"But the American bishops have been
expecting this and procedures to im-
plement it have been in place for some
time now," the U.S. church source said.
The latest concern about changes in
Roman Catholic annulment procedures
was triggered by an interview given on
Vatican Radio Tuesday by Cardinal
Pericle Felici, president of the canon
In the interview, Felici said an-
nulments in a certain nationshad in-
creased 7,500 percent over the past 11
years. Though he did not name any
country, church sources said he was
referring to the United States.

Senate leader announces
opposition to AWACS sale
WASHINGTON- Senate Democratic leader Robert Byrd announced
yesterday he will oppose the sale of AWACS planes to Saudi Arabia, dealing
a serious setback to President Reagan's hopes the deal will jurvive in the
Byrd, whose vote and political weight was regarded critical by both sides,
told the Senate he fears the sale of AWACS radar planes.
"I do not believe this sale serves the best interest of the United States,"
said Byrd, who had long been undecided on the issue. "Quite the contrary, I
believe it places these interests in jeopardy.
"In my estimation, if the AWACS sale were to proceed at this time, the
Saudis would lose, the Israelis would lose, the Egyptians would lose, the Jor-
danians would lose and ultimately, the United States would lose."
NATO renews pledge
to deploy U.S. missile
GLENEAGLES, Scotland- The Western military alliance endorsed plans
yesterday for deploying new U.S. nuclear missiles in Europe despite
growing public opposition in the five countries where they will be based.
In return, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger pledged the Reagan ad-
ministration would consider trying to reduce missiles in Europe to the "zero
level" during forthcoming arms limitation talks with the Soviet Union.
The endorsement made at a meeting of 13 NATO defense ministers con-
firmed a December 1979 agreement to deploy 572 cruise and Pershing II
nuclear weapons in West Germany, Italy, Britain, Belgium and the
Netherlands beginning in 1983.
It was not a final vote on the deployment, however, and was seen as a for-
mality on the part of defense ministers from Belgium and the Netherlands. In
those two countries coalition governments are divided over whether to ac-
cept the missiles on their soil.
NATO has 15 member nations but Iceland and France do not belong to the
military committee and were not included in the NATO Nuclear Planning
Group meetings at the posh Gleneagles golfing resort in Scotland.
Solidarity strikes continue
despite Party orders
WARSAW, Poland- Thousands of rebellious workers walked off their jobs
yesterday, defying the Communist Party's orders to end protests, and new
strike alerts were reported througho'ut Poland.
Leaders of the Solidarity labor federation gathered in Gdansk to discuss a
possible nationwide warning strike.
More than 150,000 workers staged a one-hour warning strike in Zielona
Gora province because of a management dispute, and 12,000 Zyrardow tex-
tile workers, mostly women, maintained their sit-in for the ninth day.
GNP slips again
WASHINGTON- The faltering U.S. economy slipped again in the July-
September quarter as the Gross National Product declined at an annual rate
of 0.6 percent, the government reported yesterday. The second consecutive
loss was the surest evidence yet of a national recession.
f Such a recession, the eighth since World War II, would be the second in as
many years. But the current downturn, by all accounts, is much shallower
than last year's.
The growth in market value of all the nation's goods and services to $2,947
billion-$2.9 trillion-was turned into the second consecutive quarterly
decline after adjustment for the shrinking dollar, the Commerce Depar-
A half percent decline in final sales was largely responsible for the produc-
tion slump, especially weakened exports, housing investment and state and
local government purchases, the department said. Economists generally
say a 4 percent production increase is, necessary to shrink the unem-
ployment rate. All figures were seasonally adjusted annual rates.
